Not the nicest or newest Holiday Inn Express I've ever stayed in, but we got a great deal on Hotwire during the busy holiday week for a price that was too good to pass up.
Pros: well managed, accommodating staff; moved us to a king room on an upper floor after our first night (and had a little balcony). Better than average complimentary breakfast (a number of hot items each day), great location in Palm Desert. New flat screen TV's. Free 8oz waters available at the front desk. Clean pool area and hot tub. Pretty quiet rooms. Granted us a late check out as a Priority Club Member.
Cons: Don't stay on the first floor; get a room instead on the 2nd or 3rd floor. An empty room was broken into (from the outside) on the 1st floor during our stay (kids after a new flat screen TV, apparently). Rooms/sink area are rather small. Beds a little too firm for my liking. Pool area looks out on a power station. Only one elevator which gets a lot of use.
